This Saturday May 18, 2019, for Museums Night 2019, the Musée de la Grande Guerre opens to welcome history enthusiasts and families for a night visit and an escape game focusing on the First World War.

If you’ve never visited the Musée de la Grande Guerre, do it for Museums Night 2019 planned this Saturday May 18, 2019. On the occasion, the museum’s teams have come up with several entertainments along with the S’CAPE group offering you all night long to solve enigmas.

Open in 2005, the museum gathers over 3,500 items from 1914-1918 brought together by a historian fascinated by the First World War, Jean-Pierre Verney. Daily items, weapons, soldiers’ outfits, as well as tanks and Taxis de la Marne are brought together in a chronological and thematical tour that is very pleasant and suiting children.

Some areas of the museum have been turned into life-size playgrounds and where you’ll have to solve enigmas to escape in 30 minutes maximum!

On the program of the Museums Night at the Musée de la Grande Guerre:

  • Escape Game “Les brigades du musée”

Famous police department created in 1907 by Georges Clémenceau Les Brigades du Tigre have to face an enemy from the past. The goal of the latter? Destroying you! You, new recruits, have 30 minutes to thwart his traps.

  • Night tour

On the occasion of the European Museums night, the museum opens for free from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Make the best of it to (re)discover the museum in a new light and walk on the large panoramic terrace.

  • Musée de la Grande Guerre family area

Children can enjoy a resting area, the billet, where soldiers could write letters, get parcels, read stories and rest safely.
